Week 8 2013: Results are in, picks are graded, and oh no what happened?

Week 8 was pretty mundane if you ask me.  I’m sure that you, just like myself, made the following predictions for last week: Tennessee over S.Carolina, Vanderbilt over Georgia, Mizzou over Florida, Auburn over Texas A&M, UCF over Louisville, and Ole Miss over LSU.  We all probably also picked FSU over Clemson, Notre Dame over USC, Stanford over UCLA, and Minnesota over Northwestern.  Now I’m not here to point fingers, but below you may find a handful of people who did NOT make these obvious picks.

Needless to say, it was a rough week for our posse of expert analysts.  First off, let’s get the good performances out of the way.  Brad Edwards went 3-1, as did Lou Holtz and Trevor Matich.  Pat Forde had a decent week at 22-8.  Herbie went 7-4, and Lee Corso went 6-3 nailing the headgear pick with FSU over Clemson.  Jennifer came in with a solid 8-4 record this week.  The winner this week by default goes to Desmond Howard, who came in at 6-1 basically by the chance that he only picked 1 SEC game.  Congratulations Desmond.  Bill Murray went 5-4 but put on a delightful performance.

Now let’s move on to this week’s real news.  A handful of others tanked hard.  David Pollack went 2-3.  Todd McShay went 3-3, but missed TWO upset specials.  Mel Kiper Jr. went 2-3.  You would think Dari Nowkhah and Jason Sehorn would be this week’s co-losers at 3-8.  However this week we had a performance for the ages.  I hope you remember this day and tell your grandchildren about the week that Robert Smith, last year’s bowl pick’em champion, put up an amazing 0-9 performance.  I don’t recall ever seeing something like that in all of the years I’ve been doing this.  It somehow seems harder than going 9-0.  Whatever it was, it was impressive.
